DSLR cameras are nice tools, when used properly. I personally stick to a point and shoot with an ultra zoom, SX260HS. Case in point, I got to overhear a couple fiddling with their Canon DSLR, while trying to take a photo of a tiger in Brookfield Zoo. I think think they took one shot, maybe two. In the meantime, here are how many shots I took:
Not all of them are perfect, but in the time it took to adjust an aperture setting or manually focus, I got some really amazing shots. I am not a professional photographer, so why use the excessive and expensive tools? At the end of the day, I got the shots that I wanted, in focus, and properly exposed. Which shot is your favorite?
